Over the course of the Championship season, Wolves have firmly established themselves as the top dogs in the division. Clubs up and down the league have been looking upon the Midlands club with great envy, as they've been able to pull away from the rest of the pack on their way to securing promotion.

A lot of the plaudits have been directed towards the like of Nuno Espirito Santo, Ruben Neves, Diogo Jota and more top foreign stars in their ranks - when in reality, one of the biggest names behind the club's success has been there much longer than the rest.

That man is Conor Coady, who has been Mr Consistent at the heart of the Wanderers' defence throughout this season. In fact, since making the move from hometown Liverpool, he's been more successful than anyone could've imagined. In the midst of a squad filled with tricksters and well-known players from Europe, Coady is proving to the world why he was always considered to be such a hot commodity.

But beyond that, his passion for the club is what sets him apart. Making the transition from a club he'd supported his whole life could've been an extremely difficult prospect for the 25-year-old, and yet, he showed the maturity and wherewithal to adapt to his new surroundings at Molineux without a single hesitation.

He understood that he needed to get his head down and prove himself in what was already considered to be one of the biggest clubs in the Championship.

Coady is a player who isn't afraid to get stuck in when it matters most, will fight for every single ball, and genuinely wants nothing more than for Wolverhampton Wanderers to succeed. His joy is notable during any and all press conferences, but he balances that perfectly with his professional mindset on the pitch.

He'll likely be one of the first in line to lift the title when Wolves take on Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow, which should be his latest step in becoming a legend at Molineux.
